I know you mentioned you didn't want to send it back to Ruger, but it really isn't a bad thing. Sure, they will do the conversion, but they will return the original parts back to you with the gun. It will be much safer with the conversion, and you always have the option of restoring it to its original factory condition. Plus, if you wanted to, it would be a perfect time to let Ruger reblue the gun! I let them do an older 3-screw Single Six, and the results were excellent.

Warning: It is my understading that Ruger may not be returning the older parts. If you return it to the factory I would send only the barreled frame. They don't need the rest to do the required repair.

I do not want to send it to Ruger. Probably won't
I have a newer blackhawk as well and has a much worse trigger in it. It feels weird. I hope when it gets a couple thousand rounds through it that it wears in.
The bluing is still excellent. A little wear on the end of the barrel from being in a holster. It adds character though.
